Today’s feminists I think of it all wrong. It seems they’d rather sit around and bitch about men than to try to fix the real problem facing women today.
Too many feminists today want to complain because somebody else will not pay for their birth control; they consider that a war on women.
Too many feminists today want to just male bash and complain about otherwise good men. They feel the need to continue to kick an already compliant mule. What I mean by that is sure back when women were unequal men held the reigns tight unwilling to give up control. Today they’ve proven over and over how valued and respected women are. So why kick a mule who’s no longer stubborn?
They fail to see the war is won or virtually won in America. Could we complain we still make less than a man? Sure or we could take charge of ourselves and realize when it comes to jobs and salary we are the masters. Just demand equal pay, it’s called personal responsibility.
Feminists in America and Europe won the war and then fell off the deep end. Where are they today fighting for the rights of all women? Here in America we can speak, vote, travel, dress how we like, work, seek educations including higher educations. While in other parts of the world women truly have it hard.
Women are second class citizens under Sharia law:
Sharia punishes the woman for being raped with lashes and jail.
Sharia denies them the chance to drive or go out without a male family member.
Think about it here are real women denied the ability to leave their own homes without a mans permission and even then they must take a man along to “keep them out of trouble”. When they can go out even escorted they can’t choose to wear what they want no they are forced to wear certain clothing.
They would rather take aim at the soft underbelly of flesh, the American man. Because they’ve been conditioned after years of being beaten down into thinking that they can’t speak up or they’re some kind of woman hater. The feminists of the free world at least the old guard now would rather keep kicking the mule long after it relented.
I think a strong man is fine, a man who knows what he wants, a man who knows where he wants to go. To me these are good things in a man, in a mate. A strong confident man who treats his woman with respect and decency is what I desire and what every woman should desire. After all is feminism about equality or superiority?
Yet a man who seeks equal footing is what the old guard feminists take aim at. These are the same women who later complain about not finding a real man.
Today’s old school feminist have turned their back on the women of the world who are struggling under true tyranny. Where are those voices today? Strangely they are silent.
Terry O’Neal the president of the National organization for Women has the bully pulpit and with it responsibility for drawing attention to women’s issues and especially the suffrage of women. Yet from her place of power she has chosen to speak out against women who choose not to murder their babies, and men who dare suggest that women can pay for their own birth control. Men buy their own condoms so why can’t women buy their own pill? That sounds about equal to me.
By complaining about buying your own medicine N.O.W. and other feminist groups just seem petty and shallow. Can’t women earn their own money without begging for a handout? Here I thought that’s what it used to be all about. At what point did feminism stop caring about equality and become a bunch of whiny crybabies claiming wrong doing when given equality?
Where are the voices of the American feminists today when there are women of the world who suffer under Sharia law?
Women being forced to walk behind their husbands, denied their vote, denied a voice, being beaten by their husbands because it’s legal and the Quran says the husband must. These same women don’t get a voice in the laws. They are forced to cover up, denied the ability to drive and are forced to stay in their homes and be good little obedient wives.
Don’t you think that’s a real war on women? But yet the feminist of America sit quietly and do nothing today while a real war is being waged against women today. Why is that? Maybe it’s because American men will not call you a bigot or hate monger. Where Muslims will call you hateful for speaking the plain truth. Islamaphobe the say but the problem is I don’t hate Islam I just see the truth in it and I’m not afraid to shine the light on it.
I think there needs to be a new term malaphobic (the hate of men) applied to the old school feminists. Anytime somebody decides to criticize men just because they won’t buy you birth control Malaphobic!
It just seems silly to me that because somebody will not “give” you something that their waging some kind of war on you. When did the feminist; the strong women of this world become so dependent upon everybody else to give them things but they’re perfectly capable of buying or obtaining on their own? When did the feminist of America decide that women’s rights were no longer important and yet birth control was?
Is this really the message that the National Organization for Women wants to get out today? Apparently so because apparently the feminist movement in the United States and become nothing more than an arm of the Democratic Party. They seem to be more interested in pretend slights verse actual barbarism.
Perhaps in time they learned some lessons. I wonder where the real leaders of the feminist movement are those who originally started it with the idea that women were equal not greater than equal to a man. What would those same leaders say today as they watch how feminism at the National Organization for Women others like them have become after their hard won fight for equality.
Would they agree with N.O.W. and join in on the male bashing and excuses? Or would they stand up and say what the hell have you become? What about the same thing as they look around the world I see women who suffer truly suffer the inequalities some of which were once found here in our own backyard.
Denied birth control hell try being denied medical attention all together. Or being forced to submit to circumcision (known as female genital mutilation which has no medical purpose and never has except to deny a woman a satisfying sexual life. Women who are forced walk behind their husbands and sometimes in chains. Women who are beating regularly because the law and clerics say it’s good. These same women are treated like property because under Sharia that is all they are.
Qur’an (4:11) – (Inheritance) “The male shall have the equal of the portion of two females”
Qur’an (2:228) – “and the men are a degree above them [women]”
Qur’an (24:31) – Women are to lower their gaze around men, so they do not look them in the eye.
Qur’an (2:223) – “Your wives are as a tilth unto you; so approach your tilth when or how ye will…”
Bukhari (6:301) – “[Muhammad] said, ‘Is not the evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man?’
Bukhari (2:28) – Women comprise the majority of Hell’s occupants
Muslim (4:1039) – “A’isha said [to Muhammad]: ‘You have made us equal to the dogs and the asses'”
Abu Dawud (2155) – Women are compared to slaves and camels with regard to the “evil” in them.
Ishaq 593 – “As for Ali, he said, ‘Women are plentiful, and you can easily change one for another.'”
Al-Tirmidhi 3272 – “When Allah’s Messenger was asked which woman was best he replied, ‘The one who pleases (her husband) when he looks at her, obeys him when he gives a command, and does not go against his wishes regarding her person or property by doing anything of which he disapproves’.”
Oh I can go on and on quoting but you get the picture. Women are property, slaves to a man. They have no rights, no place of equality period. It’s beyond me how otherwise educated women could submit to such but sadly many do.
The new feminism is naked jihad. We are fighting for the rights of women the rights. Women who do not have a basic right to an education, medicine and medical care, equality in any form, speech and more.
The right to live as you please and the right to be equal, now those are your rights and those are the rights worth protecting. Naked jihad is at work defending those same rights for women still being oppressed.
Today we have a bunch of whiny women complaining about a fake war against a particular party, a political party. That is what feminism has become in the united of states and that is why I’m not a feminist. I’m not a US feminist I’m a crusader I’m what feminism was meant to be and I will not be quiet while women around the world suffer.
Too bad there aren’t more willing to stand but at least we’ve had one million. One million men and women willing to stand for truth and feminism as it was meant to be. Feminism that stands for true and final equality of women the world over. One million willing to stand against the real war on women that is alive and well today under Sharia law.
As long as people like the national organization of women have control of feminism in the United States we will not see a true return to fighting for real freedom for women around the world. Instead with the national organization of women stands for is a stand for free birth control paid for by others. They stand for the right to abortion on demand but yet they call that freedom of choice. But the same women will tell you how wrong it is when somebody chooses not to abort. That becomes a war on them and their bodies and not just your “choice” because after all your opinion can’t be different than theirs.
Feminism today is a perverted twisted and sick ideal. It’s a shadow of itself barely recognizable at all.
I hope in time feminism will regain it’s backbone and stand up against things like:
Denying women a basic education
Forcing women to submit to female genital mutilation
Forcing women to be second class citizens without the right to vote
Denying women the ability to drive or travel outside the home
Forcing women to submit your cruelty and some punishments when they have done no wrong like being the victim of rape
Perhaps one day American feminism will be taken over by the new generation, the generation that actually cares, the generation of wants to see an end to violence against women worldwide. My generations understands what war means. War means violence and a war against women is violence against women solely because they’re women.
Today’s feminist has to understand the difference between a right and opinions. But I fear as long as the old generation is in control they will continue to politicize what Americans call feminism. I don’t know how else to put it.
I’ve been praying that enough American women wake up. They need to read, they need to do their homework and they need to find out where the real war on women is taking place.
It’s taking place in places like Pakistan were Christian women are routinely gang raped when they have the audacity to report it to the police their family is threatened with death and the woman is often raped again and the police do nothing.
Places like Saudi Arabia what little girls are forced back into a burning building because they’re not wearing the proper head scarves and dozens of them died that day in those flames.
Places like Africa where women are routinely subjected to female genital mutilation because of religious beliefs. Though honesty shows it’s about making sure the woman can’t feel or enjoy sex so that she’s less sexualized. It has nothing to truly do with any health or religious reasoning.
Places like Iran where honor killings are carried out and for no other reason than because they believe the woman has brought shame to the family.
Places all over this world under Islamic and especially where Sharia law dominates. Woman are worth half of a man and you call that fair?
How about were rape victim needs four male witnesses to tell the jury that yes this woman was raped so that she does not have to be subjected to a beating (canning or whipping) and jail time. The same people lecture me today how I am being held down and how there’s a war against me because somebody else will not pay for my $10 prescription of birth control. How somebody who believes the right to life is so precious that they have to be bad and waging war against me.
Believe it or not I can and do buy my own birth control and Aside from rape I control who, what, where and when I have sex. See in sex I hold all the cards as to if I want to or not. I can have as much or as little as I please and with whomever I please. So why do I need any more choice than that?
I’ve never fully understood today’s modern feminism if you can call it that. I know I’d be a shamed to call myself a feminist today and that’s why I’ve told you I’m not. I’m a crusader, I’m a gladiator. I am in the real warrior and I’m doing something about a real war on women and doing something for women without the ability to fight themselves.
I know they harp on that but think about how stupid that sounds. I mean really is it a war against you that somebody else won’t pay for your birth control. Really? But yet these same women sit on the sideline silent and all the while women around the world are engaged in the real war on women. We’re fighting for a woman’s right to equality to be treated as well under the law (any law) as a man in all things.
I don’t want a man who honestly thinks he’s my better nor a man who thinks he’s my lesser. My partner is my equal, my partner is equal in all things. I don’t know why women would want man who is anything greater or less than themselves. These same women scratch their heads today and wonder where real men like dad or granddad have gone. Hint ladies, feminism neutered them.
What we have now the system is broken and for them to scream about equal rights but turn a blind eye to the true suffrage women today in an effort to overreach, feminism has lost its way. The older generation if they refuse to do anything about it should move aside. The new generation of feminists really care and want to make a difference for women today. The old guard should let us have the mantle of control before their brand of feminism enters its final death throws. They should let the new guard forward while feminism can yet be saved.
As far as I’m concern feminism as it stands today can’t die soon enough. The new gladiators will take over the fight and see the war to bitter end . It’s time to retire the old crew and let new blood take the reigns and run with it.
The sidelines is not the place for me. I long for combat and my day upon the sands watered with blood. I am ready for the arena.
I am Amina, I am Jihad, I am Spartacus and I am coming for you!
